Provide the resources for making playdough and give them to the children to mix everything up and see what you end up with. Our children made the most fabulous dough a couple of weeks ago without measuring anything, lots of little hands adding water, flour, colour and escence.

i came on here to look for ideas for science as we too as a school are having a science week next week :-)


so far i am thinking of making armpit fudge http://guidinguk.freeservers.com/armpit-fudge.html


and found a blog: 'Jana Roo Can Do' http://jadaroo.blogspot.com/2011/05/science-making-butter.html

where they have made butter using a marble and a jar and then bread in a bag which i thought would be good for snack.


also tempted to try pink slime from Alistair Bryce Clegg's blog using marshmallows http://abcdoes.typepad.com/


and there is also mixing oil with food colouring and then dropping in into water/ bouncy raisins in lemonade


layered liquids: four tablespoons of veg oil in a jar, then slowly add four tablespoons of water mixed with food colouring and see what happenes then slowly add 4 tablespoons of golden syrup and see what happens.


making volcanoes/potions: fill a pot with vinegar, add squirt of washing up liquid, drop of food colouring and a splash of glitter then add a spoon of bicarb of soda, and it should all bubble over the edge of the pot like wizard/ witches potions


dropping mentos mints into cola explosion: http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/experiments/dietcokementos.html or watch video here: http://www.eepybird.com/


balloon rockets: http://www.sciencebob.com/experiments/balloonrocket.php


now just have to find some think i can do with the rest of school as doing a rotation where go round the different classes and i did most of the above last year so can't really do again!. Will go and look at the website suggested in a previous post :-)


I think its going to be a messy week next week! Em
